The Advise for those that speak ill of Shaykh Yahya and Dammaj


What is your advise for those that speak ill of Shaykh Yahya and Dammaj?


Our advise for them is:

To have mercy upon themselves, and not to expose themselves to the war of Allah and then becoming ruined, Allah, the Mighty and Majestic, is the one who said this, as found in the Hadith Qudsi (

(من عادى لي وليا فقد آذنته بالحرب‏)

“Whoever shows enmity to a Wali of Mine, I will declare war upon him”

Reported by Al-Bukhari, on the authority of Abu Hurayrah.

What power do you have, O weak poor one, against the war of Allah, the Mighty and Lofty.

And speaking ill of Ahlussunnah in Dammaj, in reality is speaking ill of the religion, because they are the peak of the carriers of the religion and the Sunnah in this time, however much this despises those who reject this, due to what Allah has made them love of the religion, and be upon firmness on it, calling to it, and striving for its sake, to raise the statement of Allah…

And they only speak ill of Ahlussunnah in Dammaj because they hold on to the Sunnah, and persist upon the methodology of the Salaf, firm upon that which doesn’t coincide with the desires of those people.

Also due to Ahlussunnah exposing what they are upon of falsehood, clarified what they are upon of deviation, they exposed their Mashāyikh, and clarified what they are upon of deviations from the methodology of the Salaf.

They haven’t found any other way to defend themselves except by defamation, and lies which are narrated to them by those that are fanatical to them.

So they experienced the capability of Ahlussunnah in Dammaj, by way of that which Allah has made obligatory upon them of ordering of the good and forbidding of the evil.

For indeed they like to compromise with each other, and to be silent upon each other

(وَدُّوا۟ لَوْ تُدْهِنُ فَيُدْهِنُونَ)

“They wish that you should compromise (in religion out of courtesy) with them, so they (too) would compromise with you.”

They claim that their precedence in speaking ill of Shaykh Yahya, may Allah preserve him, is Shaykh Rabee’ (click here for more recent speech on him and Shaykh Muhammed Bin Hādi (click here for more recent speech on him, and they are free from this, like the wolves from the blood of Yusuf ﷺ.

The Mashāyikh, and all praise is to Allah, are upon brotherhood and aiding one another, their words have come together, similarly the rest of Ahlussunnah, in the praise of our Shaykh Yahya, may Allah preserve him, and the aid of him, and the aid of Ahlussunnah in Dammaj, so let those people perish in their rage, or to bring themselves to account by repenting to Allah before they are not able to.
